Configuring my laptops sound
I bought an Acer 5739G and it comes with the Acer Tuba Subwoofer.
The official Acer site says it has:
- Dolby®-optimized surround sound system with two built-in stereo speakers and Acer Tuba CineBass booster supporting low-frequency effects,
- Optimized 3rd Generation Dolby Home Theater® audio enhancement, featuring Dolby® Digital Live, Dolby® Pro Logic® IIx, Dolby® Headphone, Dolby® Natural Bass, Dolby® Sound Space Expander, Dolby® Inverse Filtering, Dolby® High Frequency Enhancer technologies.
- True5.1-channel surround sound output
I have installed the Realtek HD audio driver and K-Lite x64 codec pack (I am running Win 7 Ultimate x64)
The problem is that whenever I watch a movie or a video, the subwoofer just doesnt work right. During speech, it sounds like the speech is coming out of the sub in low frequency aswell and it kinda gives it a terrible background noise.
Ive tried to configure it with the Realtek HD audio manager but I just cant seem to get it right. Does anyone know how to properly configure the software for this?
When configuring settings in control panel/sound or realtek audio manager, i set it to 5.1 sound and when i play the test tune, it plays through all 5 channels (left, right, center, both rear) but not through the sub. Is that normal?
